Hi, Has there any common problems when cloning running Windows XP onto new destination HDD? Which method is considered most fool proof against possible Windows problems: 1. Attaching original disk to be cloned to 2nd PC as slave and create backup tib to 2nd PC using TI installed on 2nd PC. The system cloned is not running. 2. Installing TI onto PC which HDD I'd like to clone and create a backup tib to external USB drive. System is active. The clone will have TI installed, which often isn't needed to to be cloned with maintenace works. 3. Installing TI onto PC which HDD I'd like to clone and attach the new destination HDD to it's USB port as external HDD and to use clone function instead of full backup. 4. Create bootable TI CD. Boot from CD and create backup tib to any external HDD. System isn't active. Else I'd consider it a a best practice, except that the problem may be booting with full external USB HDD support. Thanks.
